Following its debut at Oran Mor’s ‘A Play, A Pie and A Pint’ series,Butterfly Kiss, created by Fair Pley Theatre is off on tour for the second year running, stopping at Paisley Arts Centre on Sunday 29 March.

Starring veteran Scottish actor Dave Anderson (City Lights, Gregory’s Girl), Butterfly Kiss will take audiences on a nostalgic trip ‘doon the watter’ to the year 1961. Seen through the eyes of a 15 year old Anderson, broken-hearted at the loss of a first love whilst on an enforced family holiday to the west coast of Scotland, he is oblivious to the momentous events shaking a black and white world.

Beautifully choreographed with a 12 strong cast, the audience will encounter the likes of ‘Ike’ Eisenhower and Jimmy Logan before a local girl enters to introduce a teenage Anderson to the mysteries and delights of the eponymous Butterfly Kiss.

The show’s producer Stephen Wright said of the play:

“Butterfly Kiss is distinctive in that it really is a show of two halves, and might be the only play in Scottish theatre history to cite Milliken Park!”

A truly intergenerational tale, Butterfly Kiss is a great night of theatre for anyone who is, or has been fifteen.

Butterfly Kiss will play Paisley Arts Centre on Sunday 29 March, 7.30pm. Tickets cost £12 (£10 conc) + booking fee*. To book call 0300 300 1210 or at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/onlinebooking. The show is suitable for ages 14+
